The Hobie Heavy Duty Plug-in Kayak Cart has a much higher capacity and tires with tread that are more rugged than the standard plug-in cart or the Trax carts. The Hobie Heavy Duty Plug-in Kayak Cart's capacity far exceeds the weight of the heaviest Hobie kayaks. Tire capacity lists as over 200 lbs per tire. These tires are foam filled and standard rubber tire with deep tread pattern.The Hobie Heavy Duty Plug-in Kayak Cart is the recommended cart for the Tandem Island.
It works great, but bogs down a little in loose sand. Much better than the homemade one I had been using.
Cart barely fits my 2015 Outback due to the new scupper inserts. Built very flimsy, the welds holding it together are terrible and definitely won't last. Cart would be overpriced at half of what it costs. Won't be purchasing any other carts from Hobie, ever. But just to be clear, ACK customer service is awesome and has nothing to do with my dissatisfaction with Hobie's lack of quality control.
This works out perfect for me and my Outback. Most of my area's are dirt till I get right down on to the beach, and even then it works great on that short stent of beach area. If it was going to be a long pull on the sand, then I would definitely recommend the other tires specially for just sand. But for me, these work out just great for me. And ACK was quick to ship and I received it within days of ordering.
Super easy to use and has a nice stop on one end to keep it from falling out while is use. Haven't used it in a heavy sand situation, more in mixed sand/rock and seems to work very well
